Dear Coronavirus, My Weeping Will Only Endure For The Night

Dear Coronavirus,

I admit. At first, I thought you were merely the "flu." Just novel, just overstated. But, you are stronger than I and the world could have ever imagined. You have wreaked havoc all around the world, and have driven the nations to insanity. You have killed over half a million innocent people, and have endangered tens of millions.

I admit. There was a time when I feared you. You began to control my life. Every news report I watched, every thought I conceived, every action I took - was related to you. You have gone from a "thing" I thought was sensationalized, to an illness that left me feeling empty, tearful, and irate. Every nerve in my body feels exposed when I think of all you have done. All you have taken. Yet, do not be mistaken, I have moved past this foolishness.

I admit. It has taken until this very day for me to realize you are nothing to be feared. For, I will never fear a season. As the snowfall in December and the color of leaves in September, you are ever-changing. Your unpredictability is irksome and causes an uproar. Yet, I will not fear you. If I feared every change in my life, the accomplishments I prize would dwindle like the sand in an hourglass.

I admit. I have decided, at this moment, you will not defeat me. The reason for your coming, I do not know. But, I am here because of mercy. I am here because I have not allowed the rumors and the ways of the world to alarm me. With every person that feels their "freedom" is taken away because of a mask, I remember that we are in an era where there is someone that will take a knee. Even when I feel society has decided to step into the wrong ring, I know I will still be the champion. For, I showed up and poured out the blessings and grace that overflows me.

I admit. I now realize you cannot defeat a child you never knew. You can continue your reign, but I will not fear when I walk through your valley. I am protected. I wear my mask, my gloves, and hold my head high. But, I know in my heart that my true weapon lays not in the gear I don, but in the promise I hold deeply in my heart. My weeping endured for the night, but the morning has come and like the sun's rays, I too will shine.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
